Unexpected Activity at Church

Monday, August 06, 2012

emoticonWe don't get to church as often as we did earlier in our lives. I awoke with an upset stomach Sunday morning. Neither of us had slept well, but we were determined to get to church. I do the driving now so when we pulled under the canopy it was raining. DH wanted to use his power chair and I usually can get it out while he works his way to the back of the van. When he sat in the chair, we discovered the battery was dead. So one of the "door greetings" offered to get him a wheel chair and whisked him into a pew. emoticon

So I started to put his chair back in with the hydraulic lift and first it locked and a young Friend worked on that for me and then the remote for the hyd. lift acted as if it too had a low battery.
So the same gentleman helped me lift the 350# chair into the van. But now, the crazy thing was dangling 9 inches from the floor. It hooks on an arm with four seat belt attachments, so I detached those and the chair landed on the floor of the van. emoticon Talk about the emoticon sitting on your coat tail...yep, but God's emoticons were on each side of me! The message was great, the v was wonderful, and God calmed my emoticon and gave me emoticon emoticon

    I think we too often forget that God's enemy is alive and well, pulling us from what we need and what is right. So glad you went anyway and didn't get discouraged from going.
    So glad that there was help right away for you!

    The enemy does have a talent for causing all sorts of havoc. Glad it all worked out so well.

    JANE -- you are so right. When we try to do right, there are so many things pulling us in the opposite direction but when we allow the Lord to direct our paths, He lifts us out of the gloom and puts us on the ROCK.

    Praise God He won the battle for you. With the help of His warriors.

    That power chair just wasn't going to be good for you on Sunday Jane! It's great that someone helped you but oh my, to lift such a heavy chair, it's a wonder you didn't hurt yourself!
    I'm glad it worked out and you enjoyed your service and time in church!
